Reels/Paylines: 5 reels + 26 paylines

Stakes Range: 20p to £40 per spin

RTP: 96.07%

Max Win: 7,000 x stake per spin

The Knight Rider slot has 5 reels, 4 rows and 26 fixed paylines. Land 3 or more matching symbols from left to right starting from reel 1 to create a winning com bination. Only the highest win per payline is paid.

Join Michael Knight and K.I.T.T from 20p to £40 a spin. Like with other NetEnt games, there’s a Coins icon below the reels (on the desktop version). Clicking on this will show all available bet levels conveniently which can you easily select from. Either side of the main spin button are Autoplay and Turbo Mode functions. Both aren’t available to UK players though.

The Knight Rider RTP is 96.07% which just edges the 96% online slots average. The volatility is high with NetEnt not yet releasing the hit frequency rate.

When it comes to payouts, you can win up to 7,000 x your total stake which is pretty decent for a branded slot. The bigger wins will come during from the walking multiplier wilds in the Free Spins feature.

knight-rider-slot-base-game

The Knight Rider slot is the official game from the Knight Rider TV series which famously starred David Hasselhoff as Michel Knight. This 80’s throwback was created alongside Universal Games and Digital Platforms.

It sees Michael Knight and his beloved Pontiac Firebird Trans Am K.I.T.T. take on the criminal underworld in Los Angeles. K.I.T.T. is a heavily modified and AI car that can talk, fire weapons and travel at high speed. The car is probably the most iconic car ever from TV history.

When the slot loads up, you will hear the infamous soundtrack and see the original show intro which really sets the tone. If you’re from a certain age, you’ll love it. Bringing back the glorious 80s, NetEnt have done a superb job when it comes to original footage, sound and dialogue. It’s pretty cheesy but it works.

Set in the desert, symbols on the reels include low value A, K, Q, J and 10 royals. You will also find Michael Knight’s radio watch, K.I.T.T.’s steering wheel, the Knight Trailer truck, K.I.T.T.’s voice display and Michael Knight himself. Michael Knight is the highest paying symbol giving you 1, 2 or 4 x your total stake for 3, 4 or 5 across a payline.

K.I.T.T. is the wild symbol and is a walking multiplier wild that can appear anywhere on the reels in the base game and free spins. Substituting for all symbols bar the Knight Rider logo scatter.

Knight Rider Mobile

knight-rider-mobile-slot

Despite the original Knight Rider TV series running from 1982 to 1986, NetEnt have created this slot using HTML5 technology. Head to 80’s LA and take on the criminal world on mobile, tablet and/or desktop devices.

Knight Rider Bonus Features

The Knight Rider slot has a total of 5 bonus features. The 80s TV series inspired game focuses on Walking Multiplier Wilds that have multipliers up to 5x. They shift right when part of a reel. In the Free Spins feature, collecting Knight symbols will see up to 3 of them added on every free spin.

Walking Multiplier Wild feature

In the base game and free spins, walking multiplier wilds can land anywhere. When they do, the Walking Multiplier Wild feature is triggered. Walking multiplier wilds will remain on the reels and move 1 reel right when part of a win.

Walking multiplier wilds on reels 1 to 5 have multipliers of 1x to 5x respectively (i.e. 3x multiplier for reel 3). When these wilds move to the right, the respective multipliers are applied. So if a wild moves from reel 3 to 4 for example, the multiplier increases from 3x to 4x.

Multiple Walking Multiplier Wilds will see the multiplier values multiply by each other. Landing 1 on every reel on the same payline will result in a 120x multiplier.

Turbo Boost feature

The Turbo Boost feature is randomly triggered in the base game. Simply put, 3 or 4 walking multiplier wilds are added to the reels, along with their respective multiplier values.

Free Spins feature

knight-rider-slot-free-spins-feature

The Free Spins feature is activated when you land 3 Knight Rider logo scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 simultaneously. With 10 free spins awarded, the Knight Rider puts his pedal to the metal in a high-speed road chase.

There are 4 levels in this feature, beginning at level 1. To move up through the levels, you need to fill the meter. This can be done by landing Knight symbols. 3 Knights will see you move up a level each time.

When you move up to level 2, the Laser Wilds feature is triggered. 2 additional free spins are won with 1 walking multiplier wild is added to the reels. If you upgrade to level 3, 2 more free spins are awarded with 2 walking multiplier wilds. In level 3, 2 further free spins are won with 3 walking multiplier wilds on the reels:

Level Free Spins Walking Multiplier Wilds
1 10 0 added per free spin
2 +2 1 added per free spin
3 +2 2 added per free spin
4 +2 3 added per free spin

If you don’t want to wait for the free spins, there’s a Buy feature. This allows you entry to the free spins for 140 x your total stake. This option isn’t available in the UK though.

Originality








The Knight Rider slot is quite similar to Drive: Multiplier Mayhem (NetEnt) where there are multiplier wilds on each reel up to 5x. However, the source material is much better and bound to appeal to many of a certain age (35+).

Well designed, if you’ve ever watched the TV series, you’ll like Knight Rider. From a nostalgic point of view, it has footage from the series, the famous theme tune and all the characters. Multiplier wilds are always welcome and they can lead to big wins in the free spins due to up to 3 being added on every free spin. You need them to appear across a number of paylines to land the big payouts.

Being a branded slot game, it ticks all the boxes graphically. With 7,000 x stake max wins, it offers decent wins. However, slots like The Goonies Return (Blueprint Gaming) and Ghostbusters Plus (IGT) offer 50,000 and 25,000 x stake max wins (respectively) as well a slice of 80s nostalgia.

Overall, Knight Rider is a decent slot from NetEnt. Aimed at players of a certain age, the gameplay could be better. This could have been achieved with big multiplier values which could lead to much bigger top figure payouts. I personally will stick with favourites like Dead or Alive 2 or Starburst XXXtreme.

Pros
  • Official slot of Knight Rider TV series
  • Walking Multiplier Wilds in base game/free spins
  • 7,000 x stake max wins
Cons
  • Gameplay not original
